Assuming you don't have a "smart" tv.

Cheapest way (but a bit cumbersome) if you have hdmi on both your telly and your computer is just to plug your computer into the telly's hdmi port and just use the telly as a computer display.

Slightly more sophisticated would be to get a Chromecast box which allows you to mirror your phone or web browser on your tv over wifi - they are around 30squid and plug into the telly's hdmi port

Chromecast or Apple TV if moderately technically competent.

My phone can stream Youtube to the TV.

Or get Virgin Media Tivo Box - that comes with youtube and others.

seeing as this post's had a bump - since it first came around I've got amazon's fireTV stick. If you don't have a smart TV this is a good way to go - it connects to your TV and links it to the wifi, essentially making it a smart TV. Has a lot of apps (including BBC Sport and YouTube) and plenty of amazon content also - if you are a prime member there's a load of extra value here, but even if not it's pretty good for 35 (certainly on a level with appleTV from my experience).

If the PC is in reach of the TV then just a VGA monitor cable will probably do the job.

Most computers/laptops and TVs will usually have one of these ports on the back somewhere:

Just get a VGA cable to connect the PC to the TV. Approx 2 on eBay, or up to 15 in a real shop.

Select VGA input mode on the TV (usually using AV button to cycle through options such as TV, HDMI, VGA, AV1, AV1 etc.). PC/laptop will often autodetect connected display, otherwise laptop may have a function button to toggle between dual display or external monitor.
The VGA does not carry sound, so you will either have to use the PC/laptop speakers, or connect the headphone socket to the TV or external speaker input.
There are many other ways to do this with slightly different cables to carry the image and sound between PC/laptop and TV, but a fixed cable connection is probably the cheapest and simplest.

You can use USB Cable to connect your mobile and tv. Else you can simply download the Youtube videos and save then in your mobiles and Pendrive, then connect it to your TV.

Our local Aldi was selling electric log splitters recently - never even knew that anyone needed such a thing, but having seen the concept I would love to try it on various bodily parts of spamming tw@ts like LeeeCop89.

Surely the lost core training opportunity of the axe work means it's entirely inappropriate for a serious triathlete?
